in state education funding. education is another example of how in tennessee we're distinguishing ourselves as different from the rest of the country. some have said that this administration and general assembly aren't committed to public education, but that could not be further from the truth. we are literally putting our money where our mouth is, even when other states haven't done so through tough budget times. this administration is absolutely committed to public education and understands that the large majority of our students attend public schools and always will. that's why we've fully funded the basic education program the past two years and are doing so again this year. that's why tonight i'm announcing that we will invest $51 million to assist locals in paying for technology transition upgrades in schools across the state a substantial and strategic investment in our schools. [applause] another $34 million is budgeted to address ongoing capital needs that can be used for increased security measures if local officials decide to do so. and more than $35 million is budgeted for teac

that we have the skills to take advantage of them and nothing's more important than our k-12 education system. we're going to reflect on the school reforms that we've achieved before we get into the details of what we're doing next. we enacted third grade reading guarantee. i really want to thank you all for that. look, in my opinion, you can't have a kid that can't read, a student that can't read at the third grade level pushed to the fourth grade. you just can't do it. okay. now, it's not good enough just go test them. you got to start early. you got to make sure that they have the skills starting, you know, pre-k, kindergarten, first, second, third grade. we will intervene and we will help to make sure these children can pass, can really have good quality. because, you know, in the early years, when you go to school, a young child learns to read so that later in their lives they can read to learn. and the studies indicate that if a child does not have good reading skills by the tenth grade, going to drop out. it's like going to a country and not speaking the language. thank you for

is giving people the skills and the education, which they need to do the kinds of jobs we're going to have in the future, which will require more skills than many of the ones we've had in the past. that's why i think you need to start early on. this country pioneered secondary education, pioneered college education. it's falling back behind other countries in preschool. and i think that's the kind of new frontier. particularly if you look at the sort of gap between the 1% and the rest, the gap between the top and the bottom. the minimum wage can help, if done responsibly. much more important is to invest in people at the bottom. that's why universal preschool really helps. >> there's k through 12 in this country. we think there should be crawl through 12. other country that is do this have very high taxes. we're not in the situation where people want to pay for something new at the moment. don't move. coming up, our bubbles -- yes, bubbles. the key to this slow and steady recovery, are the feigns here to stay or are you at risk of the next bubble bursting? like an available heads-up displa

educate. but we must go beyond thinking more rigor will get us better achievement. we have to remember a school is a community and in a xhuept, people look out for each other. they've got each other's back. how do we begin to promote that idea that we are in this thing together? we believe it's through, unfortunately but truly, self-interest. kids are driven developmentally by the desire to fit in, to belong, to be part of an affinity group. if we can capitalize on their desire to look out for their friends and give them some more tools and opportunities and support, they will begin to do what we need them to do to at least confront it in their own small cell of social influence and the compounding and leveraging of that begins to make change. so the question we have to ask ourselves, are we as adults willing it slow down enough to invite kids to sit down at the table with us and partner? do we have the courage to understand that inclusion takes time and we have have to work more diligently to i invite young people, particularly marginalized young people, to take part. >> you menti
